Celebrity MasterChef finalists battled it out tonight (September 8) in the 2023 series final with a clear winner crowned.

The celebrity finalists left still standing in the kitchen for the final were Luca Bish, Amy Walsh and Wynne Evans.

The last three were whittled down from a famous bunch of eager cooks with axed contestants including singer Jamelia, drag queen Cheryl Hole, The Wanted singer Max George, DJ Leon 'Locksmith' Rolle and singer and former glamour model Sam Fox.

As always, the stars were set a challenge, and for one last time, they had to present a faultless three-course meal in just two hours. Judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace were the ones they had to impress, and for one celeb, they went above and beyond - Wynne was named the winner!

Gregg professed that it had "been an honour and a delight" to see the stars progress over the competition.

In the semi-final earlier this week (September 6), the trio were sent to work at a restaurant under Robin Gill, skills they brought with them this evening for the high-stakes final.

Gregg referred to Luca as having "natural ability" with a "great eye for presentation," with his three-course final meal confirming this.

Luca dedicated his meal to his Italian roots. He started his three-course meal with scallops and a selection of purees, followed by a steak and porcini mushroom-filled tortelli, finished off with a vanilla and whisky panna cotta.

Amy has been known for getting flustered this season and a tad overwhelmed, but she refused to be a "flapper" for the final.

She made a starter of prawns, followed by a "posh" roast lamb dinner with Indian flavours and a saffron and pistachio baklava cake with tahini ice cream as her dessert.

Wynne was called "passion on a plate" by Craig. He served a tuna and cockles starter and lamb as a second course with a side of dauphinoise potatoes and for dessert, he did his own take on a "classic" Welsh tea cake.

John and Gregg praised all the celebrities for their cooking, but there could only be one winner, and after the judges labelled Wynne's cockles as a standout, and similar praise followed his remaining two courses, Wynne was the clear choice.

Earlier in the show, he admitted that he had never even won a singing contest and at times, lacked the killer instinct for the industry.

By the show's end, his confidence grew, and he ended the show: "When you start to believe in yourself, that's when good things start to happen."
